1996 Paseo Suspension

Recommended Posts

hey,

I recently had a topic asking about what shocks and springs to get for my paseo,

I was told KYB Excel G struts mated to king spring "lows", and i've had a look at them and they are probably what i'll buy.

I looked further into the parts i need to get and i also need to get bushes, any suggestions on what brand and type.

approximate prices if posible would be great too.

this is for my everyday car, i'm just after it to be more sporty and handle better.

thanks

martin

i was talking to a guy at work, and he was saying that if i get lowered springs i need lowered shocks.

if thats the case, what sort of shocks should i be getting if i'm gonna be using king spring lows?

Did you get it soughted marety ? We are doing the same job. I have fitted Monroe with kings and it does not ride well at all!

Ah thats good to hear, sorry about the extended delay in reply, have been absent from here for quite a while.

I haven't actually done mine yet, had some unexpected expenses arise then never got around to it, but the plan is to order my parts in the coming week, ive decided upon KYB shocks and kings.

Hopefully it will work well because at the moment the ride is horrible.

That is what we used and it rides really well. I got a really good deal on the KYB s from Car Bitz here on the sunshine coast. I called KYB direct and they told me who the local dealers are. I am in the trade but paid cash and bought them direct saved about $120 over the quote I got from AUTOBARN, and my mate is the local manager. Hope that helps

ah true, i work at SuperCheap Auto so i get 25% off the parts, i think i worked it out that i can get all the parts for about $640. havent really looked around for prices cus i figured not too many places would be lower than that.

also, what did you do for bushes? like did you replace any or just keep the old ones?

The bushes in ours are in pretty good condition but being brisbane i would be calling fulcrum suspension they make super pro which supercheap are you at. I have just started as manager of tyreplus in nundah.

just a quick question about your set up, how much did the king spring lows lower the car? as far as i can tell, king springs dont make standard springs for the paseo and im not too keen to lower my car 30mm cus im just keeping it on stock wheels.

These are after and before shots. The 2nd pic not lowered had 17" wheels on it and the tyres are way to tall filling the gaurds well but causing all soughts of dramas

Marty I keep meaning to ask you. I have been trying to get an Owners Manual( the one you get in the glovebox when the car is new) and have not been able to get one. I have tried Genuine first. Was wondering if yours is in tact if it would be possible to Scan it and send it to me. Alternativly would happily come to Gladstone for a visit.

yeah mine is still intact, I still have the service book aswell, though it's been mostly used because I've done 190xxxks. I'll have a go at scanning it and see what sort of quality I can get out of it

Its actually come up pretty good, i'll just need your e-mail to send it to you (if thats what you want, it will probably 6 e-mails to get all the sections to you) because i cant upload it on here as its going to be a fair bit bigger than the allowed 10MB.
